FIVE men were arrested and thousands of litres of fuel seized in Tsing Lung Tau, Castle Peak. The gangs had been detreating marked diesel oil - intended for industry and much cheaper than fuel for vehicles - and selling it to drivers of container trucks, taxis and minibuses and goods vehicles.


Customs officers said the gangs' daily turnover was estimated to be about $30,000, with a profit of about $10,000.
